Poor parsnips too often serve as crowd actor, and then get discarded (as in chicken soup), but here they are “it”. Who knew they could be so fabulous? hot and sweet is a great treatment for them, and the easiest. They are delicious at room temperature as well. Sephardi Tsimmis? I do like like traditional  tsimmis as well, but this dish is made in a jiffy. Straight from my latest cookbook! Naturally gluten-free, naturally Passover-friendly, and naturally great for you!

Ingredients:

1½ dozen very thin parsnips, peeled and left whole (settle for 5–6 larger ones, peeled and quartered lengthwise)
2 cups water
3 tablespoons olive oil
3 tablespoons sugar or Sucanat
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon turmeric
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper,
or less to taste
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions:
Place all the ingredients in a wide heavy pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium, cover, and cook for about 20 minutes, or a drop longer, until the parsnips are tender and the liquids in the pot have thickened. Pour the sauce over the parsnips. Serve hot or at room temperature. Makes 8 servings.
